Machine learning algorithms used for natural language processing (NLP) currently take too long to complete their learning function. This slow learning performance tends to make the model ineffective for an increasing requirement for real time applications such as voice transcription, language translation, text summarization topic extraction and sentiment analysis. Moreover, current implementations are run in an offline batch-mode operation and are unfit for real time needs. Newer machine learning algorithms are being designed that make better use of sampling and distributed methods to speed up the learning performance. In my thesis, I identify unmet market opportunities where machine learning is not employed in an optimum fashion. I will provide system level suggestions and analyses that could improve the performance, accuracy and relevance.
